A Chinook cargo helicopter was the hit of the "100 Years of Flight" show Friday at the Joseph Airport. The event was organized by the Joseph Elementary School teachers and site council. A group of students, grades K-5, examine the aircraft on display. The Chinook is unique in the fact that it is designed with the ability to lift equal its weight, enabling the aircraft to retrieve other Chinook helicopters. In 1996 the runway at the Joseph Airport was extended to 5,200 feet. This summer a parallel return taxiway will be constructed so that landing planes will no longer have to wait for others to clear the runway.
